Goldman Sachs executives are annoyed after CEO David Solomon relocated them from cushy offices with views of the Hudson River on the 41st floor into cubicles on the 12th floor closer to the company’s rank-and-file employees, the New York Post reported.
As Insider first reported in December 2019, Solomon wanted executives to be closer to the “Sky Lobby,” which is a center of collaboration at the company with couches, a cafeteria, and a gym.
“The Sky Lobby was specifically designed to be the hub of this office,” Solomon wrote in a memo at the time. “There is a natural ‘buzz’ there, and I want our leadership team to be part of it.”
However, sources told the Post that company executives are still distanced from everyday employees by a spiral staircase, and that the executives typically work from the executives’ individual conference rooms. An anonymous source also told the Post that there wasn’t enthusiastic support for the move.
